    Does anyone know any good links to free audiobooks? i'd like to listen to them while sewing.

    I also TiVo quilting shows such as the Fons and Porter one, Sewing with Nancy, and a couple of others. I then play them back when I'm in my sewing room.

    The TV is on 18 out of 24 hours a day! Most of the time my back is to it so I do more listening than watching.

    I usually have something going, either the radio (NPR) or TV. After I really get into sewing I usually am not really listening, it has the advantage of being able to listen to the reruns over and over.

    I always have audio books that I get from the library. They're usually mysteries, but sometimes sagas and romance. I also listen to some of my favorite Christian speakers like Bill Johnson (from Redding, CA) and Kay Arthur, by way of the internet.

    It depends...on the weekends mostly NPR and sometimes during the week as well. However, I am more inclined during the week to listen to 70's music or if I have my iPod from my office at home I listen to lectures or massage music.

    Is that the same as audible.com ???
    Thanks for sharing :D

    Also- folks check your local library. Mine has free book downloads. You have them on loan like a book but when they're due they get deleted from you account. Very cool!!

    That's my answer.....just the voices in my head. Thinking of the next quilt project. I don't turn the radio or tv on, and it is just so relaxing. If I could I'd do my quilting 24 hours a day.

    When I get to opportunity it's oldies 60's music. Mostly I have to listen to Fox News on TV since that's what my DH watches all day. My sewing room is the sun room next to the living room. No way to close it off.

    I've been lurking in the background for a while and love reading what other quilters are doing but just had to sign in to let you know of an audiobook site that I use. It is librivox.org and has lots of older public domain books. I download them or make a CD to travel in the car with me.

    NPR is the first choice for me, too. Sometimes, though, I'll listen to classical music on my iTouch, since I can't pick up a classical music station locally.

    I love old country music like 50's and 60's or old church music or light classics. If I have the television on anything with an autopsy.

    All depends on how I feel b/c I like most music. Some days it's '80s, others its blues, or classic rock, or some old TV shows. I will definitely be checking out the radio link - love the old comedies.

    Sometimes I listen to my old CD's or the radio or I listen to my Italian CD's. It's rare I have the TV on in my sewing room because TV is too distracting for me.

    Turn on the good music from the 50's on the XM stations on DirecTV.

    A lot of times I listen to nothing, enjoying the peace and quiet at the end of a long day. With all the comings and goings, and the TV, and my little munchkin....just the hum of the sewing machine is enough. I can use the mindless time to plan my days or try to solve life's problems...
